Why Use Books and Monographs?

Books and monographs will often provide the most detailed treatment of a topic.  However, because of this they can take longer to publish.  Therefore, the most current information on a topic will likely be found in journal articles.

Research Tip:  For thorough research on a topic you should use a mix of both books and articles.
